Big News for the SharePoint world. In my opinion the biggest announcement of the year outside of Microsoft in SharePoint land.
The Press Release: Metalogix Acquires Axceler’s SharePoint Business
Read the article from Metalogix CEO Stephen Murphy: “Metalogix sets new standard for SharePoint Products with Acquisition of Axceler”

leader in SharePoint governance and solutions. The addition of Axceler’s product suite
to Metalogix portfolio of leading content infrastructure software furthers the company’s

I love the stat… Metalogix has migrated 50,000 TB of content. That speaks to the years of migration into SharePoint.
This isn’t the first acquisition by Metalogix. You may remember Syntergy Replicator, and StoragePoint.
